Feminism in Italian Contemporary Art

Richard Saltoun, 41 Dover St

Bringing together the works by Silvia Giambrone and Marinella Senatore to explore Feminism in Italian Contemporary Art, the exhibition represents two aspects of the feminine: on the one hand the home–the domestic environment, that warm nest of family intimacy that all too often, rather than providing a shelter from the world, can become a deadly trap of inevitable frustrations and conflicts. On the other hand: activism, the street, slogans, songs, banners, marches, raised fists or hands joined high over the head to form a triangle–that symbolic and powerful gesture that appeared during the late 1970s, then disappeared and now, finally, has reappeared in recent demonstrations.
